The masterplan for the Knicks back in the day was to pair Chris Paul with Carmelo Anthony, once Lebron James took his talents to South Beach.
A lot of that plan fell apart, but now there is a some hope since CP3 says he is not going to sign any extension with the Clippers and will test free agency.
Knicks fans, you have received a glimmer of hope as Paul rejected an extension that would have kept him in Los Angeles for three more seasons.
“I know why I didn’t sign my extension,” Paul said on Sunday before the U.S. Olympic team practiced. “I’m going to play this season out and see what my options are.”
Paul wouldn’t entirely rule out ending up in a Knicks uniform and neither would Anthony, who smiled when asked about Paul’s future prospects.
Paul is in the exact same situation that Deron Williams was in.
He can make the most money by staying with the Clippers, but there is no guarantee that he will.
